Freehaus

Over recent months I have been in discussions with a former colleague about joining him as Director at Freehaus, a design studio in London. I have just accepted this position and will now be pouring my efforts into this exciting venture!
This website will remain as a consolidated showcase of my artworks, exhibitions and publications which I will update from time to time, so do stay in touch.

In the meantime however do have a look at what we are up to at Freehaus, through our recently launched 'website''.
